It’s the day after Thanksgiving, and I am home. I decided to take the day off so I could catch my breath before jumping into the busy season of the holiday.
I also decided to spend the morning leisurely getting ready at my own pace. While so many others are out braving the crowds and lines at department stores, I am choosing to stay nestled inside under my favorite blanket with a cup of coffee enjoying the familiar and writing. I am linking up with Five Minute Friday for the first time. Today’s prompt…familiar.
As I think of all that goes with Christmas…the cards, the wish lists, the shopping, the baking…it makes me tired just thinking about it.
For me, I want to embrace the familiar this time of year. I don’t want anything new this year. I long for the familiar-simple time with my family, my favorite coffee cup, my favorite blanket, and the familiar simple Christmas decorations in our living room.
So whether you are braving the Black Friday shopping, enjoying a lazy day, preparing for the Christmas season, or having a normal Friday, leave room for the familiar in this season.
